We strolled down 59 looking for something new and found this place. We thoroughly enjoyed the summer rolls and pot stickers. The pad thai arrived and exceeded expectations. We really enjoy the Thai in Hudson. This definitely competes. Now we have a tough decision when we want Thai!

It is still the best for preparing and serving the dish called larb kai as a salad. I have asked for it to be a main entree but they had not ever heard that request before. One disadvantage for me is the following: If you are sitting in the corner near the front window you will be placed under the... More

This is a nice little restaurant in Kent, Ohio that serves really good Thai food at reasonable prices. Portions are good sized, just right for sharing so that you can try a variety. If you like it spicier, ask. They will make to your specifications. The place is small, with a pleasant atmosphere. The service is good without being pushy.... More

Wild Papaya has good service, affordable prices and a good atmosphere. The noodle portions are very fulfilling, the lunchbox combos served between 2 and 4 pm have a nice variety of food selections (salad, spring rolls or dumplings, and a curry of your preference), the appetizers are good and their tea, be it either iced, hot or bubble tea, is...

This hidden little gem is on route 59 in Kent, Ohio. The extensive menu is all genuine Thai and prices are very reasonable. The Thai chefs are skilled and often visit the dining room and ask the dinner guests if their meals are prepared properly. Service is excellent, due to the small size of the restaurant. The Crispy Pad Tai... More

This was our first time at the restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised with the food, service and atmosphere. We had Pad Thai and Yellow Curry with pork. Both dishes were tasty and plentiful. We even returned within the week to try other dishes. Highly recommend!

I've been to many Thai restaurants and I wouldn't rank this in the top half. I ordered the spicier version of the Phad Thai and asked for it to be extra spicy. It was not spicy at all. It tasted bland and almost like it was reheated. I wouldn't go back here.

If it weren't for the clean facility and very pleasant staff, this review would be in the "poor" category because the food was mediocre. Based on the Trip Advisor reviews, I was looking forward to a wonderful Thai meal. On the plus side, the Thai iced coffee was tasty. But the summer rolls had obviously been sitting for a while...

If we hadn't seen the reviews and been looking for it, we never would have found this place. And that would have been a real shame, since the food is on par with the best big-city Thai restaurants, at a fraction of the price. The service was friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere was pleasant, once we got past the... More

The staff is friendly & knowledgeable. They have wonderful bubble tea & their food is always perfect & presented beautifully. Great Vegetarian selection! I go there often & there is never enough clientele! Perhaps because they're new & in a small plaza without a lot of foot traffic. I would hate to see this place disappear! It is affordable, modern...
